    Anyone else think the ringer volume is really low?? Speaker volume in general seems low. Tried a few ringers and they just seem low compared to Droid x and my tbolt. App to fix or just the phone?? Return it try another Gnex?

    I noticed that too. My wife's Inc2 is super loud and cant believe the GNex is this quiet. Very annoying

    Just found we are not alone. 2 page thread at androidcentral. Guess we can just report to Samsung or to Verizon? Not sure who to even complain to and try to get a fix or bug report lol

    Yeah this issue was around before release day. Guess no one was looking at the bugs on the device.

    Yeah I noticed it was pretty low compared to my OG Droid, then again the phone is really slim so I don't know if it could really be that great and be so skinny..

    It says in the market that Volume+ is only Gingerbread compatible. So it is working on ICS?

    Volume far lower than my Incredible. Used the tip here and added volume+, works on +4 nicely. But why should I have to add an app for correct volume? wtf

    Volume seems fine for me. Some tones are much more quiet than others

    I swore i would never deal with a phone with crappy volume issues. As it is, this is a HUGE deal breaker for me. Have until the 15th of January to see if it can be dealt with. If not, it will go back :(:(

    Volume of device in quiet areas is fine. But get on the train or out in loud areas and you'll quickly find you can't turn it up loud enough.

    It definitely needs a few more levels in volume.

    I'll give Volume+ a try.

    The nice thing about the Nexus is that if its not a hardware issue, a software patch will likely come very soon.

    An update can fix this be patient. It is on the quiet side but doable imo

    very quiet for me too, will try volume+ and edit this post

    tried volume+, works a little bit better. Then I installed Zedge and just found a ringtone that was louder and now its great.

    As of now, I'll never be able to watch a movie without ear phone as you simply can't hear it unless the room is dead silent.

    Def noticed this as well when trying to set my alarm. Not really even close to loud enough to wake me up. Kind of sad.
